AMC’s ’80s computer drama “Halt and Catch Fire” generated less heat with its Season one finale than it did with it June series premiere–at least in the ratings.
In Live + 3 numbers, which take into account people who viewed the finale on Sunday and over the next three days, the series fared considerably better, surging 71 percent to 980,000 total viewers — though that was still short of the 1.2 million viewers who tuned in for the series’ premiere.
Among the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers, the “Halt” finale drew 227,000 viewers, compared to the 433K demo viewers who tuned in to the premiere. In Live + 3 numbers, the demo audience for the finale jumped up 67 percent to 379,000.
Overall for its maiden season, “Halt and Catch Fire” averaged 1.23 million total viewers in Live + 3, with 543,000 in the demo.
